The Island Who Keeps on Growing : Hawaii

There’s nothing like basking under the warm sun and feeling your cares drift away in a beach especially if that beach is located in the Aloha State of Hawaii.
Hawaii is a state made up entirely of islands. It is known as the “Paradise of the Pacific” because of its beautiful beaches with palm trees, exotic flowers, beautiful mountains, thick rainforests, breath taking cliffs and canyons, deep blue seas and majestic waterfalls.

It was said that volcanoes from the bottom of the ocean formed the islands of Hawaii. The Kilauea volcano was the most popular volcano of the island. It rose above the surface of the sea as an island and has been erupting ever since. A popular legend embraces this volcano, and that is the “The Legend of Pele the Goddess of Fire.”

Pele was the volcano Goddess described in ancient Hawaiian chants as “She who shapes the sacred land.” Pele was passionate, volatile and capricious. Her father sent her away from Tahiti because of her hot temper. She would always quarrel with her older sister who’s the Goddess of the Sea, so Pele left the island with a canoe and went to Hawaii where she made many fiery volcanoes. Her older sister followed her and every time she made a volcano, her sister would flood the fire to put it out. The two sisters came into a very big fight and Pele died. It was believed that her spirit lives in the Kilauea volcano and is still known for her violent temper. Some say that if you take her volcanic rock (lava), she would put a curse on you.

The Kilauea volcano, throughout its life has erupted from three main areas, the summit and two rift zones. Eruptions along the east and southwest rift zones have built ridges, but most explosions are non-explosive and just sends out lava flows slowly down the slope. The eruption had been continuous and the lava flows from that eruption forms new land. Because of this, the island of Hawaii is continuously growing.
